How To Get Updates For Windows 8.1

How do I know if I have the Internet Explorer security update for Window 8.1? How do I get the update if it hasn’t been installed? Do I go to Microsoft’s website?

Selma – getting your 8.1 updates is easy. You can just start typing Windows update from the Metro/Modern start screen or search for Windows update in the Search Charm. Then choose Check for updates from the results.

The Windows Update center will open. You will either see available updates displayed or you can choose Check now to see what’s available.  You can click on any available updates to install.

Choose View your update history to see recently installed updates.

Here, you can see the recent critical Internet Explorer update was installed on this device.

To set up automatic updates, click or tap Choose how updates get installed.

Click the drop-down menu beside Important updates.

Choose Install automatically and then Apply.
